Tents and RVs

We have sites for those with their own Tent or RV.

Tent camping is available on varied campsites. Camping has moved closer to the shower houses and main buildings. The new sites are below the shower houses.

RVs are welcome year-round, but we do not have RV facilities or hookups. Guest Services staff will show you the options for camping or RV stays.

Meals are included for Tenters and RVers. Tent spaces DO NOT include facilities for cooking or picnicking. We are in fire country. No campfires are allowed. Tenters cannot use candles, kerosene lamps, or anything with an open flame.

We live by the woods. Because of animals, food is not allowed in the tenting area. We have a refrigerator on an outside deck behind our kitchen, which is available for use by guests.

Tent Sites

The tent sites are close to the shower houses, and there is an outhouse. Men's and women's bathrooms are available with showers, toilets, and sinks, a minutes' walk from most tent sites. RV sites are a little bit further away, but still close to the main campus.

People choosing to camp in winter conditions are asked to sign a waiver accepting responsibility that will be provided by our Guest Services staff.

About the Shower Houses

For Those Staying Outdoors
